The world’s leading travel guide Lonely Planet has designated North Wales as one of the best locations in the world to visit in 2017. Among the areas highly recommended by the guide is the Snowdonia National Park. It is a special part of the country where people come to relax and enjoy a wide range of leisure activities in spectacular surroundings.
Snowdonia’s landscape is unique. The nine mountain ranges cover approximately 52% of the Park and include many peaks that are over 3,000 feet (915m). Apart from the beauty and charm of its high mountains, Snowdonia is a delightfully varied landscape of steep river gorges, waterfalls and green valleys.
The views are breathtaking whatever the season. These are some of the autumnal scenes Caernarfon photographer Richard Outram has captured over the last few days.
